"Second Entry:Young Frankenlost"

I was thinking about this movie and couldn't resist skewering our remaining Freighties. :-)

And of course I always pick on Locke and Ben, here in an old pic that I made up long ago. Have a safe Halloween, everyone who partakes.

"Lostoween Is Near"

Here's my contribution to this year's Lostoween season. I didn't feel as creative as last year, but Count Deadlocke did manage to inspire something suitable. Since I was so lazy, here's last year's parade of costumes for new visitors who may not have seen it: http://capcomslost.blogspot.com/2007/10/happy-lostoween.html

"Autumn in Keamyland"

Since I seem to have nothing interesting to say about Lost at this time for some reason, here is a lovely picture of autumn foliage from the mystical forest in Keamyland, for your viewing pleasure -- courtesy of the fertile minds at 'Keamy's Paradise' blog (see sidebar links). People have written sentimental songs about autumn in New York and Vermont, but I have a feeling that seeing this vegetation in the woods would inspire some pretty interesting emotions as well.

"A Fox Network Idea For Lost And ABC"

People who watch Fox's new series "Fringe" may have noticed that the show spends less time on advertisement breaks than most shows. I thought that this was just supposed to be the procedure for the Pilot, but it seems to be carrying on for the rest of the season.


Excluding the mini-recap that precedes each Lost episode, according to my VCR, most Lost episodes run about 33-36 minutes on the average. This last Fringe episode ran for almost 48 minutes, while the ad breaks are quick (60-90 seconds) and few. It would be nice if J.J. and company could convince ABC to allow them to follow the same guidelines with Lost, that they can over on Fox with their new series. Considering all the mysteries and questions that we would collectively like (read: need!) to see satisfied in the final two seasons of Lost, 10-12 more minutes per episode would really help to facilitate that. Right? :-)
